Tech – for Everyone

Tech Tips and Tricks & Advice – written in plain English.

Interesting news?

Here is the latest new information about Microsoft’s soon-to-be-released operating system, Windows 8.

* What exactly do you get with Windows 8 Pro?

Windows 8 will come in only two retail flavors. One is the base edition, with no fancy marketing label, nothing to say it’s a home or consumer edition. So what do you get with the Pro edition? The list of Pro-only features is short and to the point. No complex matrix required.” Read more..

* Microsoft’s Windows 8 consumer and Windows RT editions: What’s missing?

Microsoft officials have finally started to confirm specific features that will and won’t be included in the various Windows 8 editions that are due out later this year…

..This could simply mean, as some believe, that Windows XP and Vista users will have to do a complete install of Windows 8, and won’t be able to do a less-involved upgrade. But it could have broader implications, one Microsoft watcher said.” Read more..

Also.. a big, big trial is starting.. and a new Trojan targeting Apple Macs has been discovered. The world of tech –> always changing.

Oh, yes. For those of you not entirely delighted with Firefox 11, a new beta of 12 is now available!!!


Yes. Twelve.
(I don’t know. Maybe they drink too much coffee over there?)

You may as well try it, as soon, it appears, they will change your version whether you like it or not.

Firefox as scareware?

Hmmm.. could this be the end of my using Mozilla??? I’ve been onboard since version 1.2 … (I know a lot of you have bailed because of the constant update nag..)

  1. I want some of their coffee. :)

    Work tomorrow… got things to do.

    People love INFOGRAPHICS- Here’s an interesting one. The Internet In 2020 Here I was hoping “The Cloud” would crash or would morph into something less scary. If they can take down Megaupload then your little Cloud(if they so wish) can be locked down and served to them on a platter in minutes. I wonder if spammers may have taken grammar/spelling lessons by then?

    And on a cheerier moment…Thought someone might like this…No, no Dick Clark.Rita Hayworth Is Stayin’ Alive I guess tap and disco are related???? The sync is amazing.

  2. Yeah. I’ll have some of that coffee too!

    I’m in line right behind you TP. I’m getting more and more frustrated with Mozilla as each day passes. They continue to release current 3.6 versions for the geeks among us that refuse to upgrade to a newer Firefox browser that doesn’t support our favorite (and required IMHO) add-ons. I will try the latest version when I have no other choice, but if my add-ons don’t work I’ll drop it like a hot potato. Regretfully, Chrome here I come!

    • kstinman,
      I may be getting to my planned testing of Chrome+NotScript sooner than planned.. but odds are I’ll swallow my bile and stick with the fox.
